Protecting Human Rights in the Americas: the Inter-American institutions at 60 (numéro hors-série 2011)
Dirigé par: Bernard Duhaime, Gordon Mace et Jean-Philippe Thérien
Rédacteurs en chef: Gabriel Hoïdrag, Michael Hennessy Picard et Pierrick Pugeaud
The years 2008 and 2009 having marked important anniversaries for the Inter-American Human Rights System, among them the 60th anniversary of the American Declaration on the Rights and Duties of Man, it seemed a particularly appropriate moment to reflect on the evolution of the system, its successes and failures. In proposing this special edition of the Quebec Journal of International Law, the editors seek to offer a critical assessment of the human rights regime in the Americas with the help of contributions by expert scholars. Papers included in the special issue are centered around three main themes: the evolution of the human rights regime and its singularities, the impact of the regime, both inside and outside the region, and the challenges that the regime is now facing.
